Damn this freakin heat!

It's killing me! My little gadget here tells me it's 37 degree Centigrade with 12% humidity right now. It's almost 7:30 PM, and the power's out, I'm home alone in the dark, and I have about 1 hour and 40 minutes of laptop battery time. I will not light a candle, lord knows I don't need any extra source of heat. What I need is electricity.

I'm in bed, melting, really, really melting. Precious water oozing out of every pore, I am melting. I am bored and melting. I know the human body comprises of a hell lot of water, but this much?! I'm afraid at this rate, I will shrivel up and die. I perspire faster than I can drink. When my laptop dies, I will lie still and try to slow down the melting process. But I will not be surprised if when the roomies get home, they find only a puddle of water in my room where I now lie.

This is why I am writing this now - to bid all you good people adieu, in case I melt into nothingness. Oh almost forgot to mention, I have a raging cold. Yes, in this heat. A darned-raging-runny-nose-bleary-eyed cold. And I lit candles. I had to. The house is big and dark and way too quiet and my head is fresh with ghost stories that I listened to weeks ago and I'm scared like a kid. The Gods are indeed cruel!

I had to laugh despite the vulgarity lol If you were female, I know for sure you'd be in a permanent state of heat, the type that doesn't have anything to do with the temperature.

If you melt at 37°C, I wonder how would you feel after a couple of months here in Chennai :)

Jerusha my dear, are you there, or have your remains been respectfully collected in a bucket by your roomies? I hope I'm not too late. I was just wondering if they could put the bucket in the freezer, and If you turned to ice, and they chiseled that ice into a likeness of you then put it over a slow flame, then maybe we'd get our lovable friend back again... too complicated?
